Congratulations to the BIRD team, winner of a Best Paper Award at EKAW2022 conference!
The EKAW conference (23rd International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management) took place in Bolzano (Italy) from September 26 to 29. The conference focuses on all aspects of knowledge acquisition, modeling and management, whether theoretical, methodological, experimental or applicative.
Congratulations to the Tangram team (CNRS, Inria, Université de Lorraine), winner of the Best Paper Award at the IPCAI conference (International Conference on Information Processing in Computer-Assisted Interventions).
The conference, a leading event for innovation in the field of computer-assisted surgery, was held in Tokyo in June.
The prize rewards the work of Nariman Khaledian, Pierre-Frédéric Villard and Marie-Odile Berger on the simulation of fluid-structure interaction in the heart mitral valve. This work will enable practitioners to refine their diagnoses and increase their knowledge of this organ.
The Dynalips technology allows to precisely synchronize the lip movements of 3D characters and the words they are supposed to pronounce. This lipsync technology, based on the research work of Slim Ouni, associate professor in computer science and member of the Multispeech team (CNRS, Inria, University of Lorraine), offers a fast solution to precisely and automatically synchronize the lip movements of a 3D character with speech.
The workshop “Ethics in computer science: write your own dystopia” is intended for PhD students, students and researchers in computer science, natural language processing and philosophy. It aims to create a space for reflection and exchange to explore together the issues of research ethics through science fiction. It will take place on November 3 and 4, 2022 at the Château du Montet, in Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy.
